Retrieve Call Logs with C#
In this guide we’ll cover how to retrieve information about in progress and completed calls from your Twilio account.
The code snippets in this guide are written using modern C# language features and require the .NET Framework version 4.5 or higher. They also make use of the Twilio C# SDK.
The first thing we'll need to get started is our Twilio account credentials.
Retrieve your Twilio account credentials
First, you'll need to get your Twilio account credentials. They consist of your AccountSid and your Auth Token. They can be found on the home page of the console.
With our account credentials in hand, we can then retrieve our call logs using the Twilio C# library.
Retrieving call logs
You can use Twilio’s REST API to retrieve logs about the phone calls to and from your Twilio account. If you just want to check a couple logs, however, you should try looking at the voice logs in your Twilio console first.
To list all phone calls for your Twilio account, just call
CallResource.Read() and iterate over it.
Read method automatically handles paging for you, fetching new pages as you iterate through through Call objects. For more information, visit the C#/.NET Helper Library page.
You can also filter the results. This example only returns phone calls to the phone number "+15558675309" which had a call status of "busy" but you can filter on other call properties as well.
Finally, if you just want to retrieve information about a specific call you can get that CallSid directly.
